The Academic Curriculum at GJR International School is so designed that Experiential Learning is an interwoven part of Primary Years Programme and Senior School Curriculum. This process is evolved to help the students to have sound practical training to substantiate theoretical expressions.
Learning that is considered “experiential” contains all the following elements: reflection, critical analysis and synthesis, opportunities for students to take initiative, make decisions and be accountable for the results. It provides opportunities for students to engage intellectually, creatively, emotionally, socially, or physically.
Within a senior school course, experiential learning is about creating assignments and activities based on real-life situations and/or primary research that engage students in data-driven problem-solving with no predetermined right answers.
Students along with their teachers are encouraged to conduct internal and external symposia, conferences as well as science fairs, Science Fairs, Subject-specific Open House Weeks and Talent Fairs. Senior students undergo internship programmes with Working with mentors at our premises or partner sites, students recognize and use their strengths and interests to explore their creative and critical thinking cognitive spaces and Leadership Skills.
GJR International School’s Inclusive Education policy helps to support students in all spheres of learning as our aim is to foster academic confidence and independence in every individual. Learning is an active, dynamic process. Constant change and growth occurs in each student day-to-day as well as year-to-year. With strategies woven into regular class routines, students develop the necessary skills to be confident and successful learners.
We focus specifically on a student’s unique area of challenge. Differentiated learning ensures there is no ceiling set to learning.
Individualized Learning Program serves students who benefit from small group, individual instruction and flexible programming. Where required, students are placed in small groups or individually helped by grade teachers/ specialists by providing written and verbally structured numerical or language specific challenges.
Parents can collaborate with school and volunteer to be mentors assisting teachers in differentiated learning and instructions or to assist in specific events. Students who are doing well in class are encouraged to help peers who are having difficulty.
The School has access to counselling assistance designed to serve and assist the unique needs of students on campus.
GJR International School embraces technology with enthusiasm, always bearing in mind that the human interaction between student and teacher is the single most important aspect of education and must never be compromised. We integrate information technology to enhance learning. The use of information and communication technology (ICT) is a natural and essential part of instruction and studying at our school, from preschool through high school.
Students have access to computers and online resources under guidance, in the classrooms, library and labs for research and presenting their work. Regular updates of assignments, home-tasks and class activities are shared with parents and students online. Classrooms are made conducive to teaching with technology involving interactive whiteboards for hassle free and safe learning.
